Chelsea comeback increases Saints' fears of drop as rivals win

"Don't forget we went 2-0 down, but we had the right spirit to come back and win the game".

"I'm very disappointed for the first half, and I'm the first to take fault for it, but in the second my players deserve credit".

The win left Palace in 16th place, six points clear of Southampton.

Less positive news for Chelsea is the fact that Marcos Alonso could face a Football Association charge for a stamp on Shane Long that went unseen and unpunished by referee Mike Dean shortly before half-time.

If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to win the game, but today I'm very happy with the second half, and very disappointed with the first. This is because it is hard to watch the game images but I think in the past I have never complained about a negative situation for my team.

Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen were picked at the heart of Conte's defence and there was no room for former Roma player Antonio Rudiger due to comments that he made in the media.

The Southampton boss said: "It was a poor challenge, a really poor challenge".

Olivier Giroud scored twice, his first league goals for Chelsea, either side of an Eden Hazard strike just when it looked like Antonio Conte's visitors lacked the fight against opponents who scrapped for every tackle at St Mary's.

"Thankfully he's just about OK, but he's been raked down the calf", Hughes said.

"We are having a hard season and we know this, but especially in this situation I think you can see the men before the players".

The home side had a late half-chance through Josh Sims, but the midfielder fired straight at Courtois as Chelsea secured all the points in spectacular fashion ahead of their meeting in the semi-finals of the FA Cup next weekend.

"You've got to get the big decisions right". If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win.

"If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win". We need to finish this season in the best possible way.
